Welcome

The integration of a continuously growing solar (PV) and wind energy share into our today’s and tomorrow’s energy sectors is one of the great challenges for sustainable societies.

Especially the flexibilisation of energy consumers is taken as one of the key solutions for a cost-efficient system integration of fluctuating renewable energies.

2019, December, Industry initiative for development and market launch of Floating WINDdesal (FWD) with five partners

Floating WINDdesal (FWD) is a wind-powered seawater desalination unit as a floating application for nearshore and offshore project sites.

FWD is designed for minimal water production costs, CO2 footprint as well as minimal impact on maritime and terrestrial environment.

With its high mobility potential, it targets to fulfill temporary supply tasks and should enable projects at locations, where conventional desalination could not be financed.

In 2019, the tec-partners aerodyn Energiesysteme (wind turbine design), EMS Maritime Offshore (marine services), Norddeutsche Seekabelwerke/Prysmian Group (submarine cabling) and Boll & Kirch Filterbau (fine filtration) joined the industrial initiative, so that they now come together with SYNLIFT as 5 partners.
